Local students were willing to get their feet wet and jump into learning all about water.

River Keepers is holding their 17th annual Water Festival for local fourth graders on both sides of the river.

The goal is to teach students more about the Red River of the North and water ecology.

The festival has many hands-on learning opportunities that will work interactively with students on water properties and treatment, all to go along with their school curriculum.

“We want our fourth graders to learn the science behind water so that in the future they can make better decisions about our water use and also be good stewards of our water resources,” says River Keepers Executive Director Christine Laney.

Project sponsors include the City of Fargo, Project WET and the Fargo Public School District.

More than 2,000 students will attend the five day event.
